NCAA Expanding March Madness Field to 68?

My favorite time of the year for sports is March Madness.  Sitting at home and watching 2 straight days worth of college basketball tournament action is still something I treasure.

The NCAA had looked to expand it’s field to 96 teams this year, a move I strongly disagreed with.

Now, there are rumors that a 68 team field is much more likely.  What does this mean?  Most likely, it means that 4 additional at-large teams will make the field.  They will compete in play-in games for the last at-large spots, usually 9-12 seeds.  Northern Iowa was a 10 seed this year, so this should make for some very interesting games.
